Woman of the Week: Abagail Adams

Abigail Adams

Early Advocate of Women's Rights

Remember the ladies, and be more generous and favorable to them than your ancestors.

Although Abigail Adams, a highly intelligent woman, was educated at home, she came to feel that women deserved public education equal to that provided for men. As first lady, she also advocated emancipation of African-American slaves. Her letters, some of which were published posthumously, reveal how much she influenced the presidency of her husband, John Adams.
